Full of spectacular artworks and treasures from antiquity, the Louvre is one of the world’s greatest museums. But the sheer size and richness of the collection can be daunting.
With this helpful audio-guide (in nine languages) you can make the most of your visit. A map with a choice of itineraries will help you find the artworks that interest you most.
Step back into antiquity and view treasures like the Seated Scribe or the Venus de Milo. Marvel at the explosion of creativity in the Renaissance with Michelangelo’s Slaves and of course Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. See 19th French masterpieces like Ingres’ La Grande Odalisque and Géricault’s The Raft of the Medusa.
Save your time for the artworks! This is a premium service with skip-the-line access, which lets you enter without waiting in long queues. As such the price you pay includes a reservation fee for this.

We had a tough time finding our way in to the museum. Stood in the queue for tickets for quite some time due to ignorance. Some written guidelines with a map should be provided in the beginning itself at the office in this regard. Audio device was also of not much use.
The audio guide leaflet could be better and more detailed.
